Murphy Creek Trail to Polly Dome Lake

Murphy Creek Trail to Polly Dome Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The Polly Dome Lakes sit at the base of Polly Dome, an enormous polished granite dome. The hike begins at Tenaya Lake and parallels the east side of Murphy Creek. The trail gently climbs through a shady evergreen forest and crosses a series of bedrock slabs peppered with smooth glacial erratics. The last half mile is off-trail as you pick your way along Murphy Creek to the largest of the Polly Dome Lakes."
